General Guidelines for Authors for Submission of Manuscripts that Contain Identifications and Syntheses of Compounds


J Chem Ecol (2008) 34:984–986 DOI 10.1007/s10886-008-9512-5 Published online: 8 July 2008 # Springer Science + Business Media, LLC 2008 These guidelines have been developed to provide assistance to authors, with the goal of ensuring that compounds reported in the Journal, including both compounds that were previously known and compounds new to science, have been rigorously and unequivocally identified. The editors recognize that in some circumstances, because of the small amounts of material available from natural sources, it will not be possible to provide all the information suggested in the guidelines below. It is also impossible for the editors to anticipate all possible scenarios, given the variety of different types of structures, and the relative ease or difficulty of unambiguous identification of different types of compounds. In such cases, the editors will use their best judgment in determining whether: 1. authors are justified in claiming full identification of a compound, 2. the identification should be reported as tentative only, or 3. there is insufficient evidence to support the identification of a compound at all. In such cases, the editor may request that a compound be designated as an unknown. The editors stress that these guidelines are not intended
